Richard,

I'm not sure I understand why a stack should not be brought into  
memory and stay in memory until told otherwise when accessing it  
using the complete filenmae.  destroyStack docs state that it applies  
when a stack is closed.  Since the stack is never officially opened  
(no go stack, no msg sent) it is not closed so in my mind it should  
remain in memory.
